Becoming a Dutch citizen by option

On this page you can read information on how to become a Dutch citizen by option. The option procedure is cheaper and faster than naturalisation. However, there are strict conditions attached to the option process.

You can apply for an option at the municipality. Call (0317) 49 29 11. A checklist will be reviewed with you by phone. Are all the documents complete? Then an appointment will be arranged for you. If during the phone call it appears that your documents are not yet complete, we will ask you to first sort this out before we can arrange an appointment.
